Four months ago, 33-year-old Jared Buhanan-Decker of St. George, Utah, lost the love of his life and wife of 12 years, Sharry Buhanan-Decker, during the birth of his son J.J.
While J.J. was successfully delivered by C-section, Sharry died of a rare condition called amniotic fluid embolism, in which the fluid surrounding a fetus enters the mother's bloodstream and causes abnormal blood clotting.
"Counting down to it as the happiest days of our life, ended up being the worst," Buhanan-Decker told CNN affiliate KUTV.
As Buhanan-Decker was going through mementos Sharry left behind, he found a surprise on his computer: six voice recordings of songs she'd written years ago.
One was a lullaby for her unborn son.
Unfortunately, the songs were in a format he couldn't convert, Buhanan-Decker told KUTV.
Desperate to hear Sharry's music, he went to Reddit for help.
A priceless keepsake
Within hours, dozens of people offered to fix the file formatting. One even offered to record string accompaniments for the tracks.
"I remember one of the first ones a guy was just like, 'I'll have this done within an hour,'" Buhanan-Decker said.
Once he could finally hear his wife's voice again, the words were bittersweet.
"Baby don't worry about a thing/I'll be okay, I'll be all right," Buhanan-Decker said the lullaby goes.
Now, J.J. has a priceless keepsake from the mother he'll never meet.
"I think that on some level those [songs] definitely resonate and connect with him, hearing his angel mom's voice," Buhanan-Decker told KUTV.
